What's colo like in Ontario then? Here I've got a box in London for 45
British pounds per month, equating to roughly 120CAD - 100Mbit burstable
connection with dual 100Mbit connections, unlimited UK private free
peering bandwidth to home for transfering stuff, etc.

I enjoyed hearing about the number of enquiries at Canadian immigration,
following the US elections. Watching our Queen's speach today and
hearing about the Identity Card proposals reminded me that I want to get
out of this country before it's ruined in 4-8 years or less :-)

I'll look for that.
